Volunteer with us at CicLAvia: Heart of the Foothills

Pomona Valley Bicycle Coalition will be stationed at the Pomona Hub during the upcoming CicLAvia ~ we’ll be providing basic bike repair for free and could use a few more volunteers.

Do you know how to fix a flat tire? Great! Help us help cyclists during the biggest cycling event in the region this Sunday. Shifts are for two and a half hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore the rest of the route.

Bicycle Revolution – La Verne Showing

University of La Verne – La Fetra Hall

April 13th, 7:30pm – FREE

University of La Verne and La Verne Bicycle Coalition are co-sponsoring a La Verne showing of the short documentary Bicycle Revolution. The film follows a Harvey Mudd Political Science class as they ride to twelve cities to experience each from a bicycle, and talk with leaders in each city. Claremont, Pomona, San Dimas and La Verne are all featured in the film.

Before and after the event, there will be tables with information from many local groups, PVBC, CiclaVia, the Local Bike Stand, Dockless bikeshare bikes to try, and others so come early. The film will be followed with a short panel discussion about efforts and progress La Verne is making to becoming more bike and pedestrian friendly. Best of all the cost is free.
